Ruined! This is a piece I'm doing for the paper quilt challenge. It was all done and ready to be photographed when I ironed a label onto the back and melted and distorted this section. Now what? I think my options are:
- Melt other sections to make it look intentional
- Add another fabric backing and quilt the sections to try and straighten
- Throw it out and do another
They say mistakes lead to something new ... I hate to give up on this because I've put hours into it with all the hand stitching and beading. So I'm looking for some inspiration on where to go next with it.
And all this because of a label. I printed the labels on Tshirt transfer and messed up all three pieces (however the other two are salvageable). This one melted. On another piece I printed mirror but followed the ironing directions for regular printing and so the printing is backwards (fixable -- just put another label over that one). On the third piece I forgot the parchment paper and transferred the words onto the iron! This is not my first boo boo with transferring -- I appear to be transfer challenged! Plus I forget about the label until the piece is all together and then need to use iron transfer instead of sewing. Frustrated!
